We need to raise $2500 to cover the costs of our theatre rental. So, why not offer specially discounted tickets (and other great benefits) to those patrons willing to back us on Kickstarter?

We love the idea of giving fun rewards to any fans that want to help us get this show off the ground. That's why we're stoked at our Feed An Actor ($50) level, and the chance to play Trick Or Treat ($500) on the person of your choosing. Plus we're giving away a boat load of tickets with each of these rewards because this show is going to be awesome.

At the very least, we hope to see you on opening weekend where we will have a party after every performance for each of our audiences!

We're a group of artists based in Provo, UT, that focus on producing scripts you don't generally see in this town, in a style that's going to surprise you.

Our first production was FRANKENSTEIN at the Provo Theatre in 2009. That same venue hosted our production of THE GLASS MENAGERIE. Then in October 2010 we jumped up to the Castle Theatre with a SOLD-OUT run of DRACULA.

(To be honest it was pretty flattering to have to turn a few patrons away because the place was so packed.)

Then that means we can make the show all that much better, pay the actors, and invest in future shows. For example, the performance rights for this show cost a good bit over $1000. Add to that costumes, set, lights, and that theatre rental and you can see that even before you pay any of the actors, the bill has grown considerably.

Any additional funding we raise goes to help cover those other costs, and potentially keep our actors from starving. That way we can use them again next time!

Here are a few of our favorites!

DRACULA - October 2010 - This show was a live radio-style performance in the stone walls of the Castle Theatre, with a foley stage (sound effects table) and original artwork projected throughout the show as our storyboard.

THE GLASS MENAGERIE - March 2010 - This shows was so beautiful. Here pictured is that famous scene between Laura and the Gentleman Caller featuring Stephanie Foster Breinholt and Daryl Ball.

FRANKENSTEIN - October 2009 - With our first production we had a lot of fun scaring the audience. Here featured is a kind of creepy Christopher Clark.

The cast & crew of DRACULA - October 2010 - Wow, this show was so much fun. The space was tight...no, cozy, but we had such exciting crowds each night.
